Vilma Sisler has been part of the Deneki Outdoors team for the past 6 years, traveling with her husband Rick and now with future angler Elias between Alaska West and Andros South. We know firsthand about Vilma’s talent in the kitchen, so we were pretty darned excited when she stepped up with one of her favorite salmon recipes.
Baked Salmon With Cheese
1 Fillet of Salmon (sockeye or silver is best)
1 Tomato, thinly sliced
½ Onion, thinly sliced and pulled apart
1 tsp Oregano
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Black Pepper
½ Tbsp Butter
Cheddar Cheese (enough to cover the fillet)
Place the fish on a baking pan, or if you’re lucky enough to be on a river somewhere, then use the pouch method with tin foil. Add half of the oregano and salt directly to the meat, then add the onion & cover with tomato. Next add more oregano, salt, pepper and the butter. Finally place in the oven for no more than 5 minutes. When the salmon is almost done it is time to add the cheese on top, cook for a minute more and then it’s done.
This is a meal in itself, but would go just fine with a little side of potatoes or rice and some veggies. Enjoy!
